Cartmel Priory Host Anniversary Celebrations

Our celebrations begin in June with a David Starkey lecture on Magna Carta and the presentation of the winning entry’s in the Magna Carta Young Writer’s Poetry Competition. A schools’ Democracy Day generating a legacy of Magna Carta school age resource materials and a second historical lecture by Dr Alan Crosby will pave the way to our main five day celebrations from 25th -29th September.

With the support and involvement of the village community, the celebrations on weekend days are enhanced with a ‘living history Medieval Tourney and Fayre’, and a ‘Son et Lumière’ featuring the Priory’s founder. Increased visitor provision on the 28th September comes from a further Magna Carta lecture and, illustrating Magna Carta’s influence through the centuries, Talks & Tours of the village provided by the Local History Society. The concert programme features leading national early music instrumental group ‘La Serenissima’ and also performances by local award winning musicians, ‘Amabile’ girls’ choir and Flookburgh Band whose concert will conclude with a firework display.
